These two feathering the nest ceramic bird shaped salt-and-pepper shakers are differently sized to represent a loving mother bird / baby bird pair, and to make it easy to distinguish one shaker from the other. The mama sprinkles salt while the baby can be filled with ground pepper. Each has black eyes, a yellow beak, and lightly painted details of wings and tail feathers. The family scene is made all the more charming with its clear gift box, which positions the two birds at the edge of a picture depicting three eggs in a nest, with the message “Feathering the Nest.” The pairing of hatched and un-hatched baby birds makes this an especially nice gift for – or from – the mother of multiple children. But the adorable imagery will be appreciated by anyone.
